It's important to instill hope and spread awareness about the options for better health!
I remember precisely the day I took my health into my own hands. It was a hot summer day as I was driving home from a tiring & stressful day at work. Gosh, it was so hot that the car didn't even cool off by the time I got home, my beautiful home. A place where my family was waiting for me and where I find my joy. But that specific day, I was not only tired and stressed but felt hopeless. I finally got home and parked my car in the garage and took a moment to take a few deep breaths before going inside my home. As soon as I opened the door, my younger son Naksh, then a little over 3 years old came running up to me and gave me his "squeezy hug"!! Oh, I so needed that hug.
But it's what happened next that shook me to my core. He said, "Mommy, are you happy, I want you happy"(in his cute kiddy voice). In that moment, I felt like a failure--as a mom, as a wife, as a practitioner, and as a human. I failed to manage my stress, I failed to hide my worries about my health, I felt embarrassed because I had neglected my own health and was drained. I was disappointed that how can I teach my fellow women to be healthy while I myself was not feeling well or even taking care of myself.
And so, I dropped everything in my hands and ran to the closet and cried and cried some more. I wanted to have more energy to enjoy my hobbies, I wanted to play with my kids and not sit back and watch them play because I was tired all the time, I wanted to make better decisions and not feel cluttered in my brain, and I wanted to feel confident in my clothes....I JUST WANTED TO ENJOY MY LIFE TO THE FULLEST!!
That day when I came out from the closet, I felt a sense of relief! I knew that in order for me to fulfill my purpose in life, I MUST take care of myself, I MUST set an example for my family and my lovely patients! They deserve it, heck I deserve it!
My purpose was clear, I wanted to change the outcome of my health with hypothyroid/hashimoto's disease and use that to give hope to thousands of other women who are going thru their life feeling just like me or worse. It's been couple of years now and guess what, I now get to do just that. Instead of trying to help everyone, I now only focus on helping women with hypothyroid/Hashimoto's disease and everything else that it brings with it. My entire life has changed for best! Here's the icing on the cake...something my older son Aarin said to me one day recently on our drive to school when I asked him if he knows what I do since he had to introduce me in front of his friends at school for a presentation. He said with such pride on his face, "My mommy saves lives of other mommies".
I see so many women who are discouraged and feel that this is how they will have to live the rest of their life! I hear things like, my doctor says that "You have kids, it's normal to be tired all the time" or "Your labs are normal so keep taking the medication"(even though you feel horrible), or the classic "This is part of you aging". My answer to them is, life is beautiful and there is HOPE! I am here to teach you that you don't need to just survive when you can thrive!!
Learn what lab markers are essential for proper diagnosis and how to interpret them and use them to help you become a better advocate of your own health!!
